    And yet BBTS says May for the first wave.

    They'll probably start in June.

    Edit: and it's not new information. It's been discussed in the other thread..

    $14.99? Damn, that's unfortunate. Ah well, other countries have it much worse.

    *sigh* at the end of the day it's $3 extra bucks...$9 if you get all 3, if you can't afford $9 extra dollars. then you're in the wrong hobby.

    But that most likely means your prices will be going up too.

    Note :
    Don't take the dates on the botcon cards as gospel.
    The vehicon card in the display, says it comes out in june.
    Also :
    The 14.99 is suggested retail price; also not gospel.
    Store prices will vary, as always.

    Wal-Mart's prices will probably be more like $13.99, and TRU's could be as high as $15.99 or even $16.99.

    Great, I can ONLY get transformers now when they are on sale. $20 per figure is just too much. And worse, zellars has them for $25. We all had a good laugh about that, but what if they are prophets?

    And Starscream's evidently Spring 2013. That's oddly spaced out. More time to save up for them, I guess.

    Usually the figures that SAY the following year end up coming out in Nov/Dec in reality.

    Is this a contest? If so, in Sweden a deluxe Transformer goes for around 33$! I win! (or lose I guess).

    Man it's getting to the point where price needs to be one of those banned issues, like politics, that can't be discussed on the board

    I don't trust this "$14.99" stuff. Store price varies.
    'Nuff said.

    Stores jacked up the price on every other figure line though; G.I Joes are now $9, Marvel Universe is $9, Target put their DC figures at almost $20.

    I definitely see at least Target going for $15. In fact, hey, they've already been experimenting with the price:

    Target has had DOTM Deluxes for $16 and Voyagers for $26 the past month.

    So it begins!
